Regina and Calgary recommendations
Greetings fellow chowhounders,
I will be in Regina and Calgary on business and would welcome any suggestions for breakfast and lunch in the downtown Regina area (I'm staying at the Holiday Inn on 11th Ave); and all meals for Calgary (staying at Le Germain).
Can't comment on Regina, but for Calgary:
Blink Restaurant for fantastic pacific northwestern cuisine with a lot of ingredients sourced from Alberta and BC. It is less than a block from your hotel and is one of my favorite restaurants in the city.
Char-Cut, the restaurant in your hotel is also a local favorite.
For more casual eats there is some very tasty Vietnamese food in China Town. The board favorites seem to be:
Also, a bit further away is another casual option focusing on local ingredients Boxwood Cafe
Or if Mediterranean is more your speed Jimmy's (across the street from Boxwood) does a pretty mean Shawarma.
Most of the decent breakfast/brunch places I know are a little further away, but let me know if you want recomendations.
